Ten Reasons to Buy Har-Bal

  • You can immediately view the problem areas of your stereo files and Har-Balize the corrections. If you are serious about your mixes sounding their best, then Har-Bal should be a standard application used in your studio to test every song before final limiting (loudness) is applied. You can't go wrong!

  • The initial volume level of your file remains unchanged even after performing the eq changes, thanks to the "loudness compensation" technology.

  • Your combined tracks will sound cleaner and more balanced. Instruments and vocals will not be jumping out at you through your monitors.

  • Removes the need to test your CD's on different mediums. The templates we use have been compiled from hundreds of songs to give you an accurate frequency range for your songs. We actually took the average frequency and decibel range these styles reside in and created templates.

    These are NOT "presets". Once you load your stereo track into Har-Bal, you will immediately SEE why your songs just didn't sound right outside of your studio. Removes the guesswork and places you in the ballpark.

  • No longer need expensive speakers because you are able to SEE the frequency ranges your monitors aren't able to reproduce.

    Don't take our word for it. Take a look at the specs of your own monitors and look up the term "frequency response". Your monitors should be able to cover the full frequency range 20Hz - 20,000Hz, "does yours"? If not, then this tool is for you!

  • Your clients will comment positively on your skills and your business will improve.

  • It doesn't remove YOU from the equation. The program simply points out to you, the areas where your music can be improved upon and allow you to make the changes. Sure, there is a slight learning curve but you will learn to love this tool.

  • Excellent tool to assist Producers, Songwriters, Recording Engineers, Mix Down Engineers, Mastering Engineers and just about anyone else that cares about a clean finished product.

  • Har-Bal is not a large program (approximately 6Mb), un-cool looking (we're engineers and developers, not artists ) and uses very little CPU resources, but it is a Giant and works likes none other.

  • Our customer service is the best, because we are old fashioned!!

All I can say is wow!!! Witness the restoration of an old song “Shake that Body Music” I recorded/released in the mid 1980’s. This demonstration of the Har-bal 3.0 software proves this software is nothing short of amazing! When the song was uploaded to Earle, it had no dynamics, no power, or presence. I had absolutely no idea how much Har-bal 3.0 enhances audio until I listened to how it breathed life back into this song! I am extremely impressed and elated that my song was chosen to demonstrate the Har-bal 3.0 software! There is simply nothing on the market that compares. Thanks Earle and Har-bal 3.0!!!

“(Har-Bal is) a cleverly implemented tool that fixes EQ problems with astonishing speed and precision…(it’s) is a welcome, important, well-designed program for those who believe mastering has much more to do with subtle response touch-ups than squashed dynamics. Very cool” Craig AndertonEQ Magazine Jan 2004
“Har-Bal is a truly unique program, extremely affordable and probably the quickest and easiest way to balance your audio material.” Ian Waugh, Music Tech MagazineMarch 2004
“Sounds good enough to use on commercial tracks. I found Har-bal an altogether more serious application than any other EQ ripping utility I’ve reviewed to date.” Martin Walker, Sound on Sound MagazineMarch 2004
“Overall, version 2.0 is a huge step forward, since it not only provides the means to improve the sound of your mixes, but also has a very good stab at doing this automatically. I can see IntuitQ being controversial in some mastering circles, but in my opinion the results speak for themselves.” Martin Walker, Sound on Sound MagazineMarch 2006
Overall, although it’s still initially harder to get to grips with than some rival ‘EQ ripper’ utilities, I still prefer Harbal, with its more considered approach to improving the final sound of an audio track, the detail of its manual and tutorials, and its helpful on-line user forum hosted by Har-Bal’s professional mastering and research engineers. It’s a serious tool that can teach you a lot about why your mixes don’t sound like commercial tracks, at the same time as improving them. Martin Walker, Sound On Sound MagazineJuly 2004
I don’t have to take my product to a high-end studio anymore – I have Har-Bal! Tameko StarMusic Dish
Australian developer Paavo Jumppanen has certainly delivered the goods on this one and turned a sceptic into a believer with this awesome piece of software. Har-Bal really does give eyes to your ears. Todd MacalpineOzmusicweed
